Oasis: Life Together // April 24
OASIS: Life Together
Sunday, April 24, 2022 12:15 pm – 2:00 pm
“The person who loves their dream of community will destroy community, but the person who loves those around them will create community.”
How do we build intentional community through loving others? How do we do life together well?
Join us Sunday, April 24th, as we explore both this topic and many different ways to be involved at the church, in Oasis, and in the broader community. A light lunch will be served.
“So in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us…Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.”
– Romans 12:5,6a,10

Christianity Examined // April 30
If your relationship with God needs a tune-up, or if you are not clear what it means to have a personal relationship with God, uncertain how to go about it, or if you are unconvinced that such a relationship even exists, Christianity Examined is for you.
Join us on Saturday, April 30 at The Church of The Apostles for truth presentations about Jesus Christ, small group interaction, and complimentary breakfast and lunch for guests. We will meet in room 201-203 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Mother’s Day Brunch & 35th Anniversary Celebration // May 8

Our summer Adult Bible Classes begin June 5! Make plans to join a class this Summer!
ABC Spotlight: The Church, Crisis, and Culture // Begins June 5
Sundays at 9:00 a.m. | Begins June 5
To say orthodox Christianity is facing a crisis in the midst of current cultural trends is an understatement. As a result, many faithful Christians are confused and angry. In this summer offering, we will investigate what lies are being told, what Biblical truths are being challenged, and how we should respond. Join us to be equipped to recognize the cultural lies and respond in love with the truth in the Bible.
